Incredible School. Great Environment. Classes are very interesting, primarily taught in the Socratic method. Professors greatly emphasize critical thinking. The Honors Program, Wilson Leadership Center, Center for Entrepreneurship and Political Economy, and the many clubs (that you get to lead) always give you something fun to do during the week. Weekends provide a great opportunity to relax and party or go do something fun with one of the campus groups. I'm loving it!

There's truly no place like Hampden-Sydney College. The brotherhood makes this place special; everyone knows everyone. Students and professors are able to have discussions both inside and outside the classroom. The professors here teach students how to think for themselves! The tradition of honor here really distinguishes the college because it creates a great sense of trust among the students. There are numerous clubs and organizations in which a person can get involved. I could go on and on about the college. I have nothing bad to say about Hampden-Sydney College.

My feeling about this school is that it is the best place on Earth. Coming from Richmond, Virginia allows me to be close to home if I ever choose to head that way, but that is a very rare occurrence. Whether you are considering attending or a current student, everyone is welcome here. Honestly, I understand how the thought of a small, all male, liberal arts school in rural Farmville, Virginia could make many people stay away. But, once on campus, you will realize how great this truly is. We have ladies visit on the weekends, everything a student will need is within a short walk from his room, and a liberal arts education really allows for a student to develop a knowledge of all majors before deciding on one. I highly recommend my home, my school, Hampden-Sydney, to everyone I meet because I truly believe this was the best decision I ever made.
